Meghna Chakrabarti, host of On Point, will join renowned historian and writer Jill Lepore for a conversation about her latest book, If Then: How the Simulmatics Corporation Invented the Future. The book is a revelatory account of the Cold War origins of the data-mad, algorithmic twenty-first century.
This event, produced by WBUR in partnership with Brookline Booksmith, is free and open to the public, but advance registration is requested. You can pre-order If Then here.
